In this week’s episode, Brodie and Juan Jose discuss how to make the World Tour Finals/WTA Championships more exciting, and why they aren’t as exciting as they could be. 5 sets? More competitors? Elimination bracket? They also discuss Djokovic’s poor performance in London, Murray’s number 1 ranking and how it’s been a strange year. Wacky year in review podcast to come before the end of the year!

Note – apologies for some audio issues, Brodie did his best to clean it up. It should be back to being solid for the next episode.

In this week’s episode, Brodie and Juan Jose return not to talk about the goings on in the tennis universe, but to debate a couple of hot topics and wonder how the game could be improved. Specifically, the idea of 3 sets versus 5 sets in slams as well as coaching from the stands and on court coaching. Should the slams still do best-of-5? Should women play best of 5? Should coaches be able to coach from the stands? Should all of tennis be a Davis Cup style, coach on the sidelines free for all? Tune in to find out.

This week Brodie and Juan Jose largely focus on the men’s final, including how Andy Murray’s second Wimbledon was different from the first and what Milos Raonic did well all week and why he came up short in the final. Of course, they save time to talk about Serena Williams’ all time greatness, why Angelique Kerber is so fun and why Denis Shapovalov is worth checking out (hint: it’s his one handed lefty backhand).
